– Thailand braces for severe weather in 45 provinces
The Meteorological Department of Thailand (TMD) has issued a severe weather warning for 45 provinces, including the capital, as storms continue to enter our region. Small boats are advised to remain on shorelines, which includes pleasure trips, and swimming is prohibited in the bay as northern provinces were the first to see deluges.

– Budget issues threaten Thailand’s 10K baht credit scheme
As the government struggles to launch its promised 10K baht credit scheme for those on lower incomes due to budget issues, the Fiscal Policy Office has advised that current budgets and social security payments will NOT be enough to handle the increasing number of retirees who qualify for the small pension paid by the state. They recommend an increase in social security payments of perhaps 50% or a plan to supply additional budget from other income.

– Search continues for missing tourist in Thai jungle
In Uttaradit, a large team of rangers, police, and volunteers is still searching for a missing tourist who disappeared last week in the jungle of a national park. The missing Thai man, a non-local, was sought again yesterday despite huge storms drenching the team. So far, his rucksack and shoes have been found, but there is no sign of the solo trekker who was only noticed as missing because he registered when entering the park but didn’t register as leaving.

– Election Commission investigates complaints of collusion and rigging
The election commission has yet to endorse the recent election of senators for Thailand’s second house as it investigates myriad complaints of collusion and rigging. Despite the fact that most, if not all, complaints are the result of sour grapes, each has to be investigated. Yesterday, they were due again to meet with the hope of a decision by mid-week.

– Chinese couple WANTED for public love-making 
After a Chinese couple was caught in a Chiang Mai car park, locals, of course, filmed the event. It seems two policemen interrupted their fun, insisting that they put their clothes back on before removing them to a local hospital. It seems excess weed combined with alcohol led them to divest themselves of their morals. They subsequently fled and are being sought for questioning.

– Thai student wins Red Bull Racing Team design competition
Well done to a 16-year-old Thai student who won a competition to design the outfits used by Thailand’s Red Bull racing team. It seems the college student beat all comers to win the competition, and the new livery will be on show at all events soon as it was released to the press last week along with photos and will be seen at the upcoming British Grand Prix.

– Thailand’s Tinder Swindler Exposed
Thailand has, it seems, its very own Tinder swindler. One woman virtually dated the army low-ranker via a TikTok account, sending him small amounts of cash as he claimed his salary was meager and he couldn’t afford to eat. Finally, they met and, of course, spent the night together, something that he recorded on his phone. Realizing that she was tired of funding him, he blocked her on social media, leading her to check him out and find that at least three other women had been duped. A complaint to his superior, according to her, saw him put in the brig for two weeks and ordered to pay her 100K baht. One other woman paid for him to fly to see her, gave him spending money and luxury goods. They had also warned his current, married, beau, but she, besotted, wouldn’t believe a word they said until, of course, she reconnected with them, minus a few K baht, and joined their demand that he be prosecuted.

– Russian arrested with fake cash
When a Thai man cashed in a 500 euro note at an exchange booth, he found himself in hot water after staff called the police, realizing the note was a fake. Duly questioned, he revealed that he is a hotel employee and was cashing the note to pay a resident’s bill. A visit to the Russian guest’s room was more revealing, as they found the 29-year-old holding a stash of fake notes, leading to his arrest.

– Good news for drivers in Pattaya
Good news for locals as the road works are finished. Well, those at the Pattaya North intersection of Sukhumvit anyway. For traffic, it’s a relief; for pedestrians, not so much as footpaths, as is often the case, have been left a mess, but we are assured that too is being quickly rectified. For now, at least, Sukhumvit traffic can return to normal.
